Rumor here right now is that Soriano is going to lead off and play center field. That's just the leading rumor here in Texas, I have no official conformation of it so take it with a grain of salt.
With that said, there will be extra RBI opportunities for the young guns on the staff. I know that Fullmer isn't a big name, but being a power hitting left hander in the Ballpark In Arlington is not a bad thing at all. I expect Palmeiro like numbers from him this season. Say something around .270-35-100. That's some protection, granted not Arod, but still some protection.
Here's my projected lineup and again take it with a grain of salt since I've got nothing official on it yet:
2. 2B--Mike Young
6. RF--Brian Jordan
8. C---Einar Diaz
9. SS--Eric Young
Not murderer's row by any means, but I've seen a lot worse. If the Rangers will sign some solid pitching (probably won't be until next offseason) then they could do very well.
There's always the possibility of a trade for some pitching. Nix and Nivar are a couple of guys that could get some attention from other teams.
Sorry for the rambling, I still rank the guys the same as I did before for fantasy though.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
